Make cruising the Bahamas easy -- know exactly where to find everything you need.

A traditional cruising guide isn't designed for quick answers!

Instead of reading through pages of text, use our revolutionary new Quick Reference to easily find WHERE . . . 

  • Is the nearest anchorage with N (E, S, or W) protection

  • To get fuel, water, or a haul out

  • There's a grocery store . . . propane . . . an ATM

  • And more!

Separate island-by-island tables for the Bahamas let you quickly find just what you need:

  • anchorages including wind/wave protection directions, depth, current, swell, and availability of places to walk dogs

  • marinas and moorings, with phone numbers and available services

  • customs & immigration, fuel, propane, water, trash, grocery hardware/marine stores, liquor, restaurants/bars, ATM, laundry

  • cuts and navigation alerts

  • storm holes

  • haulout facilities including maximum beam

Tables are organized N to S, not alphabetically, making it easy to find what's close to you.

What's Inside

An invaluable supplement to traditional cruising guides

ANCHORAGES -- Easily locate a suitable anchorage by scanning down the column for the forecast wind direction. You can also check the depth, holding, current, swell, and access for dog walking. Anchorage names are those used by Active Captain and thus can be easily found with the AC overlays on Garmin, Navionics, and Aqua Map.

SERVICES -- Quickly find the closest location for the types of stores and services you need.

STORM HOLES -- Is a norther or tropical storm threatening? Our list of storm holes will help you choose the best place for your situation.

OTHER SECTIONS — Our Cockpit Quick Reference Guide also contains similar detailed, easy-to-use pages on NAV ALERTS, MARINAS AND MOORINGS, and HAULOUT FACILITIES.
No ads other than the bonus discount on Aqua Map chart packages.
